Twizel Bridge


Twizel Bridge, over the River Till, was built in 1511. At that time it provided the only dry crossing of the River Till between the Tweed and Etal. Two years after the bridge was built, both Scottish and English armies are thought to have crossed the bridge prior to the Battle of Flodden in 1513. The English Vanguard, including the English artillery, is noted to have crossed the Till at Twizel on the morning of the battle on the 9th September 1513, on the way from Barmoor to Branxton.[1] The bridge is Grade I listed.
